C4D R13 Kinect Character Template
I started playing around with Kinect mocap in Cinema 4D a little over a month ago. It’s pretty fun. It has it’s limitations for sure but still could prove useful on certain projects. One thing that bothered me was the time it took setting up a rig and connecting it to the data that Ni-Mate creates. So I created this template to make it easier and I must say the character object is pretty cool and creating your own templates aren’t that difficult. I reversed engineered one the built-in character templates to understand how they work and watched one of Bret Bay’s Cineversity videos to help answer a few questions I had. Then, I built my own template. Hope you guys find it useful.
Download the Character Template here: Ni_MateRig_JJohnson_419.c4d Install it into your library > characters folder. Then you will find the template in your Character Object template drop-down.
